Tuesday 19th April

KO: 20:00

After Bolton's 2-1 defeat against Middlesbrough, the Trotters host Charlton this Tuesday looking for their first win in twelve games. The game could be the final nail in the Championship coffin for Charlton, who will be relegated if they fail to win. And seeing as five of the last six games between Charlton and Bolton have ended in draws, it's looks a foregone conclusion.

Team News

Bolton Wanderers

Wellington Silva may play for Bolton before the end of the season. Dorian Dervite has returned to full training, but Gary Madine remains sidelined.

Charlton

Respective calf and hamstring injuries mean that Yaya Sanogo and Stephen Henderson are unlikely to play. Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also a doubt after picking up a groin injury against Derby at the weekend.

What's Been Said

Jimmy Phillips: ''There are signs of the players showing more confidence and self belief. There is more to come from the players though.

We need to finish strongly and give the fans optimism for next season.

All the pressure is on Charlton tomorrow as they need to get a result. It should be an entertaining and open game.''

Jose Riga: "What I have said to the lads is that we have to keep showing our values. We have to keep giving our all as a team. It is our job as competitors and we still wan to win games and we have to keep playing as we have been in our last games - this is part of our professional job and we will do it. We cannot think that the season is already finished, we have a lot to show and this is the best way to prepare for the next season too."
